Former Japan head coach, Philippe Troussier has publicly revealed his interest in being appointed as the next Malaysian national team boss. Rumours recently suggested that the Football Association of Malaysia were extremely close to concluding a deal with him and the man himself has now hinted towards the move.
"My choice is Malaysia. The FA of Malaysia (FAM) has not only offered me to serve as national coach, but also wants me to become its technical director. The national body is keen to have me oversee its football system," Troussier told news.xinhuanet.com.
However, Troussier is still keeping his options open, with the deal not concluded yet. The Frenchman has received plenty of offers from various countries, including Tunisia, though he claimed that a decision on his future will be made soon.
"I have also received offers from national teams and clubs in Europe and Africa. In addition, I've also got offers from two Super League clubs in China. I will make a decision soon."
